A spring in my step

I think spring has got me all bouncy and motivated to get things done. I’ve been getting so much more done with my time lately (hmm, perhaps it’s got something to do with less time on the computer…). This morning I zipped out for an early errand, cooked dinner ready for tonight (pancetta wrapped-ricotta stuffed chicken breasts with white bean mash). I find it soooo much easier to cook in the mornings, if I get the chance. The 4pm to 7pm crazy kiddy time is just not a great time to start fiddling with pots and pans.

After cooking dinner I planted some seeds, swept the verandah, pulled up some weeds and had a play with Pebble. All before 11am! Lately the sunshine and fresh breeze has meant the washing line is constantly swaying a load of fresh washing, which always makes me feel lighter and brighter. Pebble and I have been out for walks, shopping, swimming, and doing lots of cooking and cleaning. The list never ends, but I’m getting through more and more each day, and what would be the point of it all if I had nothing at all to do?



Here are the herbs that I planted today. I’ve been talking about planting a herb garden for what seems like forever, and this is my very modest beginning. I am by no means a gardener, it’s never been my thing, but perhaps this will be the start of something. I love the idea of being able to snip some fresh herbs for the kitchen. I’ll keep you updated on it’s progress!


I hope you’re getting lots done in your day today too. What’s for dinner?



  1. I love a productive morning! I had one myself.

    We're having homemade pasta and salad. yum! That white bean mash looks scrummy.

  2. Oh my word. I am still in my pjs at lunchtime usually. ALthough this morning I did manage a shower. I need to get motivated :)

  3. Ooh, last night we had Piri Piri chicken paella....quite yummy and a little spicy!


Thanks for dropping by!
